Remember the Cellini-Tornabuoni fashion show I posted the invitation to the other day? It was last night and I was totally blown away by the clothes that these students designed, sewed, and modeled. They are all conveniently beautiful and talented and strutted the catwalk in front of a full house at Teatro Verdi.

The historical costumes in imitation of Risorgimento Italy were executed with minute detail and skill, but honestly it was even more fun to see how these young people were inspired by the past to invent new and elegant forms. My two favourites are a grey silk and lace evening dress – totally wearable – and an absolutely huge white tulle evening dress that would be the perfect princess bridal dress. Both modeled by particularly attractive teens.

Here are the best of my photos:
